Great tour around Dead wood in a rickety old bus. The driver and guide was hilarious as he told the history and tales of this old goldfrush town.

The driver took us on a tour of the city, giving us a background in history, fun facts, legends and skullduggery. All in the most hilarious fashion possible, without taking themselves seriously at all. One of the best hours spent in Deadwood.

A lot of local knowledge mixed in with some corny jokes--but I like corny, so that is all good--takes up a good hour so be prepared for that. Drove all town and then up to the cemetery that overlooks the town.

There is so much history to this area and the town, there is no reason at all to make political jokes and sexist jokes. Our driver Dave was not as funny as he thought and offensive at times. I get that you want to entertain...More

If you Google 'Kevin Costners Original Deadwood Tour' then there is a web page with a 'Contact Us' button. Cannot put the link on for you as it appears to be against Tripadvisor policy! :-(
